To reference an ID, you have to use the ID without "#".
The "#" has only to be used in your Stylesheet (CSS) to mark an ID,  
whereas a "." has to be used to mark a class.

For example, your CSS for the ID "ContentArea" might be:

#ContentArea {
     border: 1px solid #000000;

.StandardText {
    color: #ffffff;
    background-color: #000000;

To markup your content it in HTML the right way, you have to write/ 
reference it as follows:
<div class="StandardText" id="ContentArea">

Remember, that Classes may occur several times in per document and  
may be reused, whereas an ID must not occur twice per document.
